Movie Business 2018 Update 3

The next update of the 2018 Edition is ready for download. It does not make too many changes, but corrects several errors, and improves the game balance.

For a complete list of changes see version history. The game you obtain it, as usual, with the subpage Download MB2.

This version also updates the set makers to 51 version that adds 169 the creators.

The main contributors allowed this update:

  • Levardos (68 of the creators)
  • andrew89 (59 of the creators)
  • Arek (36 artists)

Remember that some developers could get to the waiting room with a relative too modest filmography (or too few significant roles).

Of course, as always, I look forward to your comments, ideas, reactions and of course information about problems or errors.

If you have not heard about the Movie Business and you are here for the first time, you can also refer to the section Director's Cut and Help page, where you can find a lot of information that can help you in the early stages of exploring, this already quite extensive, games.

If you like the game I remind you of the possibility of Donations 🙂

Enjoy!

P.S To już ostatnia aktualizacja w tym roku (no chyba że pojawią się jakieś mega krytyczne błędy) i powoli zaczynam myśleć o wersje 2019 😉

MovieStats: New statuses for the creators of the waiting room and to improve

Recently a lot of you adding your own proposals of creators with MovieStats. Although I was very happy, but there are cases when your suggestions may not be accepted. The reasons for this state of affairs are of two types: formal or technical. Hence I decided to to the current status of the creator accepted or rejected introduce two new statuses, which should somewhat clarify the reason not to accept the creator at any given time, which can, however, be accepted in the future.

Designing experience and Movie Business

About three years ago I mentioned You about that on the portal PolakPotrafi I supported the crowfounding of book about game design by Jacek Wesołowski and the team Wonderland Engineering (Wszechświetności Engineering) entitled: Engineering games. Level design for beginners. As part of the prize, in addition to the e-book, I chose the Business. Since then, there have been a few versions of the game, in which I included part of the comments and suggestions contained in the prepared by Jack document.

Where such a surge of nostalgia? Well, more than a dozen days ago started a new project of the same team. This is again a book dedicated to designing games, this time, however, the more extensive and more comprehensive. Its title is Designing experience. Mechanisms, emotions, narration.

In the next version… Tutorials

The movie business every moment gains the rail option, and becomes more and more complicated. One of the users of Reddit (where sometimes I put information about new versions of the game) drew attention to the fact that the game does not have any tutorial. I admit that from my point of view this is the element with the lowest priority, because personally, I prefer to spend your limited time to develop games, and not documentation. Unfortunately, the reality is that the issues of tutorials to no end can be omitted. Today, when games for pennies or completely free is a whole bunch and it's cross-platform, when someone finds a niche game, creator has mostly only a few minutes for the new player interest in its production. In addition, when the game is so poor graphically how the movie Business by far harder to require players to spend they enough time to learn its nuances or horror of horrors to read the documentation (which after all to help for game exists and contains quite a lot of interesting details).

Hence I made the decisions that a stopgap tutorial would be useful, however, in the game.

In the next version… Events during production and producer decisions

Another, at first glance, a small modification that will appear in the new version of the game is to change the approach to evaluating the developers that occur in the movie. So far all of the enumerations associated with the determination of how well individual developers have done their job (enumeration performance) were made at the time of release. Now the most important element of which is the assessment of performance artists will be made at the very beginning of the production. This small change and has tremendous consequence and creates completely new possibilities. It's probably the biggest revolution in the game since the introduction of writing games.

In the next version. Licenses or rights to the movie

In today's world the importance of play, licenses, about specific artifacts (pop) culture. They allow you to create movies that are based on the idea. The concept of license (in the sense of rights to films) will appear in the next version of the game.

In the next version… Contracts

Options contracts jumping somewhere in the ideas of the players, however, there was no justification for its implementation from the point of view of mechanics (it was hard to put them together with some other elements from the world of the game). With the advent of the sequels some began to grieve over the fact that they do not always all the developers were available when they wanted to make a follow-up to his blockbuster. At this point the option began to take the meaning I had to find a sensible way of integrating a the mechanics in the game.

And here I guess. Along with the next version there is a new option that allows you to sign the contract with the chosen developer. Contracts will be subject to the following rules.

Update on the creators of 44 with a surprise for contributors

Another update set of creators just saw the light of day. It contains 86 and 508 photos (including more than 200 cult artists). The largest contributors allowed this update:

  • Balša Milijaš
  • Tomas Av
  • andrew89 

Plenty of cult characters as usual was added by Łukasz Oleksiak.

Since the last zasypaliście me suggestions makers, which have not had time to review and verify any time soon you can expect the next update.

Today's update had one goal, test out new functionality in the MovieStatsthat is, that at the time of the release of new update set of creators, all contributors allowed to this version will receive an email with the information as proposed by their creators in the update. It is a kind of little thing but I hope it will remind you that your work associated with proposal makers has its tangible results.

Here one more Note If you get an email, and last not dodawaliście new proposals, that is, one with the added in the past by the creators had to update (may affect the data, parameters, or added photos basic or the iconic heroes played by that person).

The update will occur when you start a new game with the default set of authors (details can be found here).

In total, the default set of games already has 2567 the creators.

Update on the creators of 43

And we have another creators set update… This time, quite a lot. It contains 181 creators and 435 photos. The largest kontrybutorami this update were andrew89 and Karol. For his part, I managed to add at the end a bit from years 70 's and early 80 's. In addition, supplemented the set of about a dozen less popular artists emerging in the cult films and iconic characters in them.

Update will apply when you run the a new game a default set of authors (details can be found here) – It may take quite a while.

In total, the default set of games already has 2544 the creators.

Cheat Codes

I think it is high time to end the current poll related to cheat codes in the second part of the game.

There were 198 votes. By what 116 people would like to have the option, 73 No, and 9 people stopped. By the way, expanding my knowledge in the field of game design, my approach to cheat codes last bit has evolved ... because it turns out that it's not always about the fraud. Just do not all want to/can afford long playing a game, and sometimes want to stress, shoot some movies with well-known artists, which probably reflects well on the same game ... that no extra motivation (in the form of challenges or other "zachęcaczy") If you like in it, just play ...

Immediately uspokajam those where such an option does not, that cheat codes will not be available in all game modes, and only those, where they will not interfere with achievement and other gameplay objectives (as in career mode or challenge).

So officially I confirm that cheat codes will appear in the next version… but there is nothing for free if you wanted to have such option that I have a task for you ... or even two.

Pierwsze brzmi jakiego rodzaju cheat kody chętnie byście zobaczyli w grze. Domyślam się, że obowiązkowo ma być to zwiększenie dostępnej gotówki. Ale może macie jakieś inne propozycje… np. słyszałem, że niektórzy nie lubią animków i może chcieliby je wyłączyć? Dajcie znać co ewentualnie jeszcze można by wrzucić pod ogólne pojęte cheat codes / easter eggs 😉

The second task related to the first is password, that these codes would activate ... instead of writing such as $100 million can be used for some of the famous quote from the movie like "Show me the money"which exclaimed, Cuba Gooding, Jr. in the film Jerry Maguire

And if you do not take advantage of the opportunity to give some own ideas ... well… you will be one to blame…

 

42 developers update
